— The Time Jerker to his fellow villains
The Time Jerker is a super villain who is a manipulator of time.
He is portrayed by Joey Richter.
The Time Jerker is a time traveler. How he became one remains a mystery, even to Captain Man and Kid Danger. He wears a sleeveless yellow trenchcoat, black checkered pants, and a black shirt. His hair is brown and tied back in locks, has a beard and silver eyes. His sole weapon is his time travelling machine which he can use to his advantage to evade capture by simply traveling back. He also enjoys making time puns.
In his self-titled episode, the Time Jerker was up in his lair on the highest floor of Swellview Clock Tower. He was sending his bag of trash 65 million years into the past to feed it to the dinosaurs through his time portal. He then receives a surprise from both Captain Man and Kid Danger, who came crashing in through the glass clock. The Time Jerker tells them his hideout may have been compromised, but he will be able to go back and make it hard for them to locate him again.
After the two fail to mock him with time puns, Captain Man duels the Time Jerker with Kid Danger behind the machine. After the Time Jerker pushes Captain Man away, Kid Danger gets on top of him and struggles to grab on. This makes him be pushed into the portal and relive his day all over again.
In the alternate timeline of Henry/Kid Danger's day, the Time Jerker does exactly the same thing as before, except Kid Danger picks up a metal number 6 from the broken glass and throws it at the Jerker's head, knocking him out. Kid Danger repeats the day once more, and travels back to fix the events he caused and once again, ends the day knocking out the Time Jerker with the number 6.
However, in Danger & Thunder, he unexplainably escapes and is seen with a gathering of some of Swellview's most dangerous criminals. He also discovers that the Toddler survived his fall and he wants them all to bring up their ideas in destroying their enemies. The Time Jerker's suggestion was to go back in time when the Grand Canyon was smaller and trap Captain Man and Kid Danger in there, with Nurse Cohort asking if he has to have time related plots all the time.
He later witnesses Captain Man and Kid Danger (and Phoebe) being revealed in their disguises and joins his fellow villains to fight them, but not before Captain Man puts out the lights in their base. Following the capture of Captain Man by the Toddler using the Heliometer, he is not seen again after that, making him at large.
